Do you think Star may drop to us ?

Will we catch a falling Star?

With Floyd rising and Star's medical condition it appears he could drop to us assuming there is nothing major wrong with his heart.His ability to play both NT and the 3 technique may be a good fit especially if we cut R edwards

It's certainly a possibility now. As long as his heart is ok, he would be FAR AND AWAY the best player for us from this draft.

Watching his youtube videos, the things that stand out most to me are 1) he is by far the quickest DT to fire off the snap I've ever seen. It's almost like he has ESP, and he's so big and stout which makes it all the more impressive. And 2) it's almost impossible to move him backwards with less than 3 blockers. I'm sure he won't be quite the immovable object in the pros that he was in college, but he holds his ground better than guys 50 lbs heavier than him. I don't think I've ever liked a prospect as much before the draft as I do Star in all the years I've followed the draft process.

Of course teams 5-13 who never thought they had a chance on him could be thinking the same thing

The rookie cap means rolling the dice on a player in the 1st is much more palatable

I have to believe someone before us will take a chance on him even with the heart issue. It's entirely possible it turns out to be nothing and he still goes top-5. I'd be surprised - though not shocked anymore - if he falls to us.

I hope so I could see our defense being seriously solidified if you draft star, and slay in the first two rounds and then maybe a safety or receiver in the 4th

We'll see. If his heart condition gets checked out relatively soon and it was a false alarm, with a good pro day he could wind up back in his original area of the draft, i.e. getting taken before us.

    • And to think this guy made it through 7 rounds and not one team wanted him.  Thank God Gettleman was on his "A" game and signed him here. Amazing how talent can bypass so many scouts, coaches and GMs. If they did a redraft.   What round would he go to?  Round 1?  He's a solid of a Guard as any in this league.
    • you do realize that $1M pledge he made was after he had received a ton of backlash and outcry from the media for sitting during the national anthem? He did hold his promise and has made some other donations as well, but before he decided to sit at football games, he didn't do jack poo for oppressed communities and the homeless, or any other charities for that matter. He was just a narcissist prima dona who so happened to play for one of the most talented teams in the NFL headed by one of the greatest coaches in the NFL. Him prospering early on in his career made him a cocky SOB who dressed like a thug during press conferences and treated the media like dog poo.  Yes people change, but he changed for the wrong reasons. His career was in turmoil, he was a declining NFL QB trying to stay relevant, so he thought up a rouge to get back in the spotlight by sitting. After he received backlash, he thought to himself "oh crap, I need to back up my words with some action. let me make a few donations to show the world I truly care about what I stand for"  the dude could give a rats ass about any of that poo. He didn't even show up to vote, and I don't think he's ever voted in his life. And I don't care about voting for the president, but at least vote for your local officials and congressman and for your states propositions. If he truly wants to have a voice and use the stage he has to inflict some serious changes in this country, there's a way to go about it, not seek attention for the wrong reasons just to resurrect your career.  
    • I love Moton. The only thing that freaks me out about him is that he played for a small school. I do think he could've flourished for a big time program though.
